Yinka Odumakin, the spokesman for the Yoruba socio-cultural group, Afenifere, has rated the President Muhammadu Buhari administration 3 over 10 in addressing the nation’s security challenges.
Appearing as a guest on Channels Television’s Politics Today, Odumakin decried the state of insecurity, stressing that the citizens may lose the country to bandits if efforts aren’t geared towards tackling the menace.
“I will rate them (the Buhari administration) three over 10 based on the state of insecurity, the whole country is ungovernable.
We must face the brick; we must have a country. We are losing the country at the moment,” he stated.
Odumakin, a former spokesman to President Buhari, also noted that the fight against corruption hasn’t yielded the desired result.
While recalling the nation’s corruption index by the Transparency International (TI), Odumakin stated that Nigeria was ranked 136.
He, however, lamented that the nation is currently 144, thereby faulting the Federal Government’s claims on the graft war.
“On corruption, in 2014, we were 136 in TI rating. In 2018, we are 144, we have dropped points. So what corruption are we fighting?
“The President used to say that we must secure Nigeria and manage it. So we have to secure the country at the state we are now,” he said.
When asked if he is confident of the second term of the President that begins on May 29, Odumakin responded saying, “The last four years have been what they are, except there is an attempt to retool,” he said.
